We are incredibly busy at the moment and it is always appreciated if the owner of the residential property is full prepared for their RICS Property Valuation.
It is important that all parts of the property are accessible to allow the valuer to carry out a thorough inspection, thereby ensuring there are no defects that could affect the value of the property. This includes rooms on all floors, the loft area, and the outside, including the garage. Please make sure that these areas are accessible prior to your appointment.
The Valuer will also want to see the heating system, they will not be checking whether or not it works but will probably want to take a photo of it for their records. This is because the heating system can be a costly item to modernise and may need to be considered as part of the valuation.
These are the main points and anything else will be explained by the Valuer on the day of the inspection.
Once the inspection has taken place, we aim to issue the valuation report within 3-5 working days.
We look forward to seeing you on the day.
